If you need to make homebrew inductance coil for the matching circuit, for amplifier, for magic crystal radio etc, you have some question:

how many turns have the coil

which diameter and length of winding

which wire is needed to use

The design of winding you have to choose empirically by the following common advice. Most of online calculators enable to find inductance of the coil knowing its winding dimensions and number of turns. This calculator help for you to estimate number of turns of the your homebrew onelayer R.F. inductor or choke on design stage. The calculator uses Bob Weaver's equation with round wire corrections. The windows version of Coil32 makes it possible to calculate the self-capacitance and Q-factor of the single-layer coil.

Calculate number of turns

ENTER THE INPUT DATA:

Select units:

AWG →

SWG →

L

=

– Required inductance

D

– Diameter of coil-former

d

– Diameter of wire without insulation

k

– Diameter of wire with insulation

Automatic

Calculate

RESULT:

N

=

– number of turns

l

– Length of winding

Clear all

Coil32 also estimates Q-factor and self-capacity of the single-layer RF coil.

Below you can see the references to best online calculators by my opinion, that enable to find inductance of the ready-made inductor.
